Original Killzone assets were found in a shoebox

The art assets for the original Killzone, needed to remake the game in HD for PS3, were found in a shoebox in the cellar of one of the studio's IT Support staff, Guerrilla senior programmer Frank Compagner has revealed. (Industry, Killzone, PS3)

Glald they found them. I'm very curious how much smoother this version of KZ1 will play, compared to the original.

I'm glad they managed to avoid loosing the necessary assets.

Wow what are the odds? Someone could've thrown it out but they found it and gave it a makeover for the PS3. I give them an A for effort. Great read this was.

This proves my point that the first didn't have the right codes to which it is one of the reasons it didn't play well.
clevernickname  +   752d ago
"Right codes"? Pardon? I don't understand your point.
Neoprime  +   752d ago
Along time ago GG mention that the reason Killzone did not function right was because it wasn't coded(wrong source code) right the codes they used were for a PC version that was supposed to come out at the time with the PS2 version but it never took off.

We have some backup tapes at work. It's not that uncommon.

The fuck? A god damn shoe box? You think they would be better taken care of.
